How are you Moonbeams? I never give my blog enough love. And these past two weeks have been no different. I feel like I am always in a blur these days... So many things to do, so little time to do them. I forget to breathe, I forget to eat, I forget to connect. I get lost in my thoughts, my should's, my daydreams.

I have to admit too, that I am a very very very cluttered and messy person. A long time ago I read a relationship book while I was going through a bad break-up and the only thing I remember from this book is "Messy bed.. Messy head." And that is definitely the state I am in right now. I feel completely scattered in my life right now because my place is a total disaster. It has been causing stress on my relationship with Jimmy too. And with our opposite work schedules it is hard to clean when one of us is tired or away. And I would rather be spending time with him when we can instead of cleaning. BLAGH. The picture above of my little boho sitting area? That lasted about 20 minutes... I don't know how it happens but I am always messy and cluttered. I would blame it on house fairies up to mischief, but it really is me going through creative projects and never cleaning up. Or being lazy and not putting clothes away. Yada yada yada.

I would love to know how you guys stay on top of your messes? Do you have routines? I smudged my place last night which really helps, but it doesn't clean up the mess! Anyway please leave any advice in the comments! I would love that!

In other news, I made a sea salt spray for your hair On the Bohemian Collective as part of the Chakra Beauty Series for the Solar Chakra. I am really happy how it came out! It works really good even for my long and really heavy hair! And the second magazine is coming out on May 1st, Beltane! It is so so beautiful! I am so honored to have 2 articles in it! They are short and sweet, but the rest of magazine is gorgeous too! I can't wait to get it in my hands!

I also want to say thank you for everyone's support during my Earth Day sale in my Etsy shop! Not only did I donate a portion of sales to Oceana to protect our precious waters, but I also donated to Red Cross for the Nepal Earthquake Relief. Click these links to donate! Even if you cannot donate, please light a candle and send your prayers to those in Nepal. It is completely devastating, but I so grateful the world is coming together to help those in need.

Moments: Re-calibrating and Aligned

I have been quiet.

I have been floating.

I have been re-calibrating.

January was a HUGE month for me. So many completions, new experiences, so much melding of my mind, body, and soul.

So many new beginnings and pathways are opening. 

We celebrated our yoga graduation at Hsi Lai Temple, the largest Buddhist temple in North America. The grounds are so beautiful and the altar room is magnificent. We had some yummy vegetarian food and just enjoyed our time together. 

A week later a group of us participated in Sweat lodge ceremony. Lodge means "the womb," so we went back into the womb of Gaia, released our prayers into the universe, and rebirthed. I had the honor of sharing this experience with my beloved and I feel our bond has deepened since this experience. It was intense, beautiful, and I learned a whole new perspective of surrender.

Our facilitator led us through a journey towards the end of the ceremony and the Fox came to me in my journey and I was given an aquamarine crystal. These codes are still embedding in me, but I know deep wisdom is brewing and will soon bubble and overflow.

I also started teacher shadowing to complete my yoga hours. It is so inspiring to see my yoga teachers in their element guiding yogi's, connecting with their truth, and helping others. It is so beautiful! My new ritual is to take a bath after shadowing and keep absorbing the experience.

Absorbing is definitely a theme for me right now. I am absorbing healing, positivity, surrounded by powerful goddesses, and loving connections. I am so extremely grateful!

For the weekend of Imbolc, the last weekend of January, I went to a Goddess retreat in Sedona and it was so amazing.I circled in sacred sisterhood, we hiked, ate yummy yummy food, talked about our birth stories and honored Brighid. January has sparked something in me. 

I feel so empowered, so grateful, so on track. I just need to get my tush organized!

I am ready for the rest of 2015. 

Thank you, January. 

ps. I have a sale in my Etsy shop right now! Use the code: LOVERS for 20% off until 2/15!

Moments: Finding Rhythm

I can't complain about 2015 thus far. It has felt pretty surreal, productive, and slow and steady all at once. The other weekend we got a rug and an ottoman for our TV area, and it finally feels like we are finding a rhythm in our home. And of course the boys love the new rug and ottoman too. That is always a plus. I soon want to show you glimpses into our space. We live in a studio so it has been challenging to make it meet all our needs, and think it does for the most part now. 

And yes I live in Southern California, so it is just starting to look like fall! The good thing about living here is that we can have a garden basically all year round. We have a small little side yard and we are excited to plan a little garden more than we did last summer. I want lots more succulents, and herbs, and I want to finish my little meditation space. The last picture is my donkey tail. It was sitting too close to the birdfeeders and the birds were picking and eating it! So I moved it and it has been recovering very well! I will be transplanting it to another pot very soon.

I never really knew how comforting having a home of your own could really be. It has become my sanctuary and my place to ground myself. And though I know Jimmy and I can drive each other crazy sometimes in such small quarters, our place is full of love. And that's what counts.

Moments: Magical Thrift Finds

On Sunday we visited my brother in North Hollywood and we went to this awesome used bookstore called The Iliad. I found some amazing steals!

I love Marion Zimmer Bradley books and first read Mist of Avalon in high school. I finally got another copy after losing mine and I am trying to get the complete series.

And another super special find was a book signed by Starhawk! After buying The Earth Path, I found the note written to Carol, but now it's for me! What a blessed little book!

I am a sucker for the title images of older Herbal books. Such a great reference guide.

And probably the most exciting find for me was a brand new Universal Waite Tarot deck including a cool poster. I never used to be drawn to the images of these Tarot decks, but the traditional imagery is calling to me lately. I am happy to add this one to my collection :)

I am proud of my bounty! I will be sharing more books from my magical bookshelf soon!
